The History of the Tower Bridge
The Tower Bridge was constructed in the late nineteenth century as a way to improve London’s infrastructure without impeding the passage of tall-masted ships on the Thames. The bridge, which won a hotly contested design competition and took eight years to complete, has since become an iconic symbol of London. The bridge takes its name from the Tower of London, which stands beside it, and it is easy to visit both attractions in a day. Don’t forget to climb the towers to cross the Thames on its sky-high pedestrian walkway! The Tower of London has been in the news recently because it was a central location of the Diamond Jubilee Flotilla of Queen Elizabeth II. A visit to the famous bridge allows you to stand at the veritable crossroads of English history, above the mighty river that has helped make London one of the most historically significant places in the Western World.
